Champagne is a drink that comes from the Champagne district. This is a given for many. But still there are people who call all wines with bubbles champagne and when they mean the French stuff from the Champagne region they say “real” champagne. Champagne is a protected trademark in many countries (all of the EU for example). But Trump served a California Champagne at his inaugural dinner and that is in fact a totally legal name (in the US) although it makes the champagne producers see red.
On this tour you will learn the importance of the origin for a champagne. Climate, weather, soils, the slopes, all this leaves its mark on the wine. Then you must add the wine producer and his particular style of course. There are always many different factors that determine how a wine tastes in the end.
